• La Cucina: The Regional Cooking of Italy

    Fifty years ago, a group of Italian scholars gathered to discuss a problem: how to preserve traditional Italian cooking. They formed the Italian Academy of Cuisine to document classic recipes from every region. The academy’s more than seven thousand associates spread out to villages everywhere, interviewing grandmothers and farmers at their stoves, transcribing their recipes—many of which had never been documented before. This is the culmination of that research, an astounding feat—2,000 recipes that represent the patrimony of Italian country cooking. Each recipe is labeled with its region of origin, and it’s not just the ingredients but also the techniques that change with the geography. Sprinkled throughout are historical recipes that provide fascinating views into the folk culture of the past. There are no fancy flourishes here, and no shortcuts; this is true salt-of-the-earth cooking. The book is an excellent everyday source for easily achievable recipes, with such simple dishes as White Bean and Escarole Soup, Polenta with Tomato Sauce, and Chicken with Lemon and Capers. For ease of use there are four different indexes. La Cucina is an essential reference for every cook’s library.

  • Italian Country Cooking: The Secrets of Cucina

    Format: Hardcover Publisher: Metro Books Pub. Date: March 2008 From the Publisher: Italian Country Cooking is about the real food of Italy. It is about cucina povera, the name Italians give to traditional cooking, the kind that is more likely to be found in humble trattorias, homes and farmhouses than in fancy restaurants. As cookbook author Loukie Werle explains, cucina povera has no adequate translation-it can mean "poor cook" or "country food"-but it truly represents some of the most spectacular, affordable and satisfying Italian food that exists. It employs simple cooking methods, seasonal fare and only a small range of ingredients at a time (a few sausages, for example, or cheaper types of fish or meat), so that even the most novice cook can turn out delicious results. Italian Country Cooking, as you'll discover when you try it, means eating with a warm heart-quite possibly better than you've ever done in your life. As a Roman proverb says: Più se spenne e pejo se magna ... the more you spend, the worse you eat.
